CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) - A 56-year-old woman was struck by an SUV and killed Thursday night in Lake View.

Dorata Gieslinska was crossing the street west about 9 p.m. in the 3300 block of North Halsted Avenue when she was struck by a red Jeep Renegade with four doors, which fled south, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.
